For new Doctor [[Sylvester McCoy]], a completely new title sequence was commissioned. Now computer animated, it begins with an explosion, which turns into stars that surround a galaxy. Three rocks then fall into the galaxy, in rhythm with the theme. The TARDIS, inside a sphere of blue energy, rotates into the galaxy, vanishing just as a spiral of blue energy swirls inside the galaxy. The Doctor's face then appears, which now has three expressions for the Doctor (sombre, then a wink, then a smile). McCoy's face was painted silver for this sequence to make him seem like he had been computer-animated. The series title (the logo once again redesigned) now appears at the very end of the sequence. It forms with the letters "W", "H" and "O" floating in space until they form the word "WHO", with the word "DOCTOR" appearing in cursive afterwards. The episode title and writer now appear on screen at the same time as the logo. The episode number, in a return to the old style, is now superimposed over the first scene of the episode. The 1993 special mini-episode ''[[Dimensions in Time (TV story)|Dimensions in Time]]'' used a shorter version of this sequence with a new rendition of the theme; the Doctor's face is not featured in this version and the part with the galaxy was horizontally reversed.

This title sequence's closing segment was the only one to include the TARDIS. It is also the only closing segment of the Original Series to not feature the title sequence in reverse; instead it showed the purple galaxy at the bottom of the screen, swirling. The TARDIS would fly randomly back and forth through the screen.
